What Bodybuilders Eat for Lunch | Fouad Abiad’s Easy Meal

I got a lot of shit for this last time too – guess what I don't give a fuck I like my Pam use it on my frying pans keep everything from sticking I don't think it's gonna kill me okay guys I am Fouad Abiad and I am gonna teach you guys how to eat big and make sure it tastes good you guys have to learn to find ways to make the food taste better so that it keeps you going so what we're gonna do is make lunch and we're gonna have chicken and potatoes so this is an air fryer it's basically a deep fryer but only takes like a tablespoon of oil to fry all these potatoes so it's somewhat healthy but it makes potatoes taste good so I can smash five of these things get like 150 grams of carbs without even blinking an eye very simple we're just gonna cut up our potatoes it doesn't matter how you cut them up it doesn't matter if you make them into fries or cubes or whatever it doesn't really matter the machine doesn't know the difference just get them in there I think it's important to know your body I think it's important to know what your body likes to use for energy and what it digests well and I think you should be able to find something that your body seems to like it seems to use well you eat it half an hour an hour later you're digested you feel like you could eat again if you have to those are good foods if you eat something and it takes you three hours to digest it you either ate way too much food or you ate the wrong kind of food potatoes are cut up all we're gonna do a little bit of salt and we're gonna do some olive oil okay so you supposed to measure like a tablespoon I don't really care so I'm just gonna pour a little bit of oil and a little bit of salt it's done close it turn it on and then we go about 25 minutes I'm just gonna do all the work itself so while that is cooking we'll start making the chicken chicken can taste like shit so I like to cube it and make it in a frying pan seems to be a lot easier since it takes a lot better that way too so I have some fresh chicken breasts that I washed and cleaned this morning I got a lot of shit for this last time to guess what I don't give a fuck I like my pam I use it on my frying pans keep everything from sticking I don't think it's gonna kill me a little bit of pam cooking spray and then simple and now look scissors the cutting board I cut potato on it I just wash it with water and it's clean I don't like cleaning up after like chicken juice and all that shit so it's simple I just cut it with a scissors right over the frying pan there's a little trick I learned from watching Jay Cutler videos I watched Jay Cutler video he's sitting at home cooking breaks out the fork in the scissors I didn't even realize like that's such a good idea I'm like I'm sitting here messing with knives and cutting boards and I'm gonna soap everything down after hopefully some kid will watch this and realize this is the way to do it and then I can pay it forward okay so that's all the chicken we're gonna cook a little bit of salt a little bit of pepper and cover that shit you got to cover it if you don't cover it the juices will evaporate cause you're not cooking with any oil so the juices were the chicken will evaporate and it'll be done on the outside it won't be done on the inside you'll burn the shit out of your chicken so make sure you cover it so that the steam helps it cook and that way you don't need the oil so you can see like with the cover on it I have a little bit of liquid here it's gonna keep my chicken from sticking also when I put the lid on you can see like it's already half cooked so it'll cook a lot faster with the lid on it I used to be this guy that like oh I don't care what it is I'll eat it because it's body building used to put like fucking tuna with oatmeal I didn't care and I thought I was being hardcore and just being stupid take a minute and learn how to cook and learn how to do things the right way and learn how to make food taste good and I said to see you guys in the last breakfast video you're not gonna make it if you just try and eat bland chicken and rice every day every meal of the day for 20 years you're not gonna make it you're gonna eventually you're gonna get sick of bodybuilding it just sucks I don't do this anymore I can't maintain this diet and you're not gonna want to do it so like I stressed in the last video it's important you guys have to learn to find ways to make your food taste better so that it keeps you going eventually when this is halfway done cooking or a little bit more than halfway done cooking you want to take the top off and just leave it off because as you can see now there's a good amount of liquid from steam creating the you know this little pool of water you want to leave the top off and let it cook the rest of the way and this will also get the water to evaporate and kind of brown the chicken a little bit you know you don't want to boil your chicken so I just turn up the heat a little bit and now you can cook the chicken and get rid of this water all at the same time you don't have to go to cooking school you don't to make shit look pretty it's just experience some people are too intimidated to cook oh I don't know how to cook I don't know how to make that I don't know how to do this listen go on YouTube type in something type in how you want to make it or just trial and error man just play with your food try and figure out ways to make it taste better okay so listen very important okay it's a scale get yourself a scale because I know in the offseason I say eat as much as you can and yeah you do have to eat as much as you can but the reverse can happen to in the off season sometimes you get so full and so uncomfortable eating that you start eyeballing your food but it actually becomes smaller and smaller and smaller because you're so full and don't feel like eating use a scale it keeps you eating the same amount whether you're hungry or or not we're just going to do 6 ounces of chicken 6 ounces and 1/8 and it's like home fries okay so that is one pound exactly so I'm gonna smash a pound of potatoes and six ounces of chicken and I'm gonna use these two sauces to do it condiments are a must okay and I know you're saying Oh condiments have sugar condiments have this stop crying okay it's the offseason we're eating to grow a little bit of sugar is not gonna hurt but it's gonna help me get this down in a hurry so ketchup for the potatoes I know it's a lot of ketchup don't fucking run your mouth and then this is tunnel barbecue which is a restaurant windsor actually Tunnel barbecue barbecue sauce put that on the chicken good old barbecue sauce I got that from Ronnie that's why I use all that barbecue sauce cuz Ronnie got huge and he did it so I'm doing it too very simple okay we have a good meal here this is a really good post-workout meal not that I'm having that for a post-workout meal now but if you're gonna have a post-workout meal this is a really good post-workout meal why because we have some quick digesting protein like this is after you've had your shake okay you have your shake first an hour later hour and a half later you're gonna have a real meal this is it gonna have some fast digesting protein with the chicken and we're gonna have a pound of potatoes and carbs a little bit of sugar from the ketchup in the barbecue sauce not a lot of fat so this is all gonna get shuttled back into the muscle and get us ready for tomorrow so there you go
